Summary:
Gotta love Montucky, big sky is knarly and beautiful. Bozeman if full of other great rides but for downhill this is the place. the trails are tight in many spots and lots of very hazardous timber inches off the trail. super fun, you will not be dissapointed, make sure your bike is at least a 6" bike with GOOD brakes, very fast sections and brutal rocky sections. After head to bozeman for some killer bar scene night life and the best beer in the west.

Summary:
My brother and I are from Wisconsin, where we don't have downhills like Big Sky has to offer, but we wanted to give it a try anyway. WOW....We had an excellent time!! Rented protective gear from the bike shop and rode the Tango trial 3 or 4 times. We were unsure if we could handle the other "expert" with the none downhill bikes we had. If I ever get back there again I'll be sure to rent a real downhill bike. Tango had a lot of loose rocks that could throw you easily, but we made it through just fine. Recommend making sure your brakes are in excellent condition along with your wrists and forearms. Bring a camera...the area is beautiful !!

Recommended Route:
Tango and any other is you feel you can handle them.

We camped at Swan Creek campground, right off of hwy 191, and rode one of the horse trails in the morning. Was an excellent ride, but we were to hung over to take it for to long, plus we wanted to get Big Sky and try the downhill there. Would recommend getting a local mt bike map, which we got at a bike shop in Bozeman. We ended up finding out that the horse trial we were on linked up to some other "mapped" mt biking trials.

Summary:
All I have to say is i'm glad i came out of this place in one piece. The ski resort let me rent some body armor which came in handy. You better hope you have disk brakes and health insurance lol. It was a lot of fun though especially the steep drop in at the top of the mountain that gave me a little scar from that darn tree at the bottom. I hear there are some secret routes that are not on the maps. Got to talk to the locals about those.

Recommended Route:
Any except access rodes

Summary:
Big Sky rocks, but I'm actually writing to inform everyone that the killer ride is across the street at North Fork Trail. It's about 8 or 9 miles of the most pristine downhill ever and I've ridden all over this country. Some of it is super steep with really technical aspects and some areas really flowy and open. If you're anywhere near Big Sky, you have to check this trail out!!

Recommended Route:
I'm not exactly sure how to get there. Personally we got lucky enough to meet a local and he took us up there. I suggest you do the same or look on a hiking map.
